President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump put on brave faces Monday, October 30, also known as “Indictment Monday,” to hand out candy to children at the White House. With reports breaking that described a seething President Trump holed up in the White House residence fuming over the day’s events and constantly calling his lawyers, worried about his family, Mr. and Mrs. Trump took a break from the political melee to greet local children of military families to trick-or-treat and celebrate Halloween at the South Lawn of the White House. One of those children dressed up just like Melania, complete with a white shirt and FLOTUS hat.
As seen in the above photo, Melania and President Trump passed out cookies to children dressed in a variety of costumes, but one of those trick-or-treaters particularly caught Melania’s eye one day before the Halloween holiday. The young girl donned white sneakers, a black FLOTUS hat, and a white button-down shirt, similar to the outfit that Melania wore when she visited the storm-ravaged region of Texas after gaining criticism for wearing high heels leaving the White House, according to Fox News. The young girl pulled her hair back in a ponytail that was pulled through the back of the FLOTUS hat.
Melania wasn’t the only politico who appeared to have a doppelganger during the Halloween event at the White House. More than one little boy was photographed with a red “Make America Great Again” hat atop their heads and dark suits adorning their bodies. As seen in the below CBS News video, children dressed as ghosts and goblins received treats from the first couple, with certain kids dressed warmly in coats to greet the cold D.C. weather.
As for Melania’s outfit, Mrs. Trump donned a Bottega Veneta double-breasted wool coat and stilettos, according to Vogue. The camel wood coat is priced at $3,290 on the Bottega Veneta website and is described as a fitted coat that helps its wearer channel the vintage days of Hollywood. Comprised of a “tactile felted camel,” the wool coat enjoys a contrasting collar and flap pockets.
